If I could ask Russlyn Ali of the Department of Education just one question . . . .

On college campuses across America this week, young men are being taught the necessity of unambiguous consent before engaging in any sexual activity. No sane and rational person disputes that consent needs to be clear and unambiguous.

For example, no one would say that a young man should proceed if he is only 50.1% sure that the young woman consented.

Then why is it acceptable for a college disciplinary board to expel a young man for sexual assault when it is only 50.1% sure that he is guilty?

Oh, tell me, that's different, right? Please, please try and tell me that's different.
